The Failure of Common Sense in Public Health

Ask the CDC what to do about fighting COVID-19, and they tell you to wash your hands. A recent article in the Atlantic detailed that washing your hands to fight COVID-19 (a respiratory disease) is of virtually no value.

Ask CDC and the FDA what to do if you are sick with COVID-19, and they tell you to take drugs, lots of expensive drugs that don’t really do much, like Remdesivir. Several studies (random clinical and in vitro) have documented that Remdesivir is useless against COVID-19. Even the WHO tells physicians not to use it.

Our government is telling us to do things that don’t work. It defies common sense.

It makes no sense, but it doesn’t stop there.

For years, even our Government has told people to cleanse their noses to avoid getting a cold or flu. Study after study shows that nasal hygiene can help you stay healthy.

It’s common sense; just like washing your hands and mouth removes pathogens and helps avoid illnesses, so does washing your nose. Really when we think about it, bacteria and viruses don’t get into our bodies through our hands; they get in through our noses and mouth.

Despite the evidence that nasal hygiene can help keep you healthy, the Government refuses to tell people about it. Early in the pandemic, a group of healthcare professionals petitioned the CDC to issue guidance calling on people to practice nasal hygiene. The CDC refused. Moreover, the evidence suggests that the CDC refused to issue nasal hygiene guidance without ever reading the studies that supported the petition.

Moreover, the CDC refused to issue guidance telling people to do something where there was evidence it worked. At the same time, it was issuing guidance on handwashing and such — things that had no data to support them because we know they don’t work.

Since then, more and more studies have shown the value of nasal hygiene during the pandemic. You would hope the Government would see the mounting evidence and finally embrace science and common sense.

No, in fact, it has gotten worse.

Now that we face a “Tripledemic” (RSV, COVID, and the annual flu) this Fall and Winter, the Government has taken down at least one of the webpages instructing Americans to wash their nose to fight colds and flu. (Side note, we all know COVID-19 is a coronavirus; coronaviruses cause about 30 percent of colds.) (Side-side note, a recent in vitro study found out that xylitol, which is an ingredient in Xlear nasal spray, blocks viral adhesion of RSV, COVID-19, and H1N1 to human airway tissue). 

It is the failure of common sense for the Government to be pushing Americans to do things we know don’t work — yet at the same time censoring information about things that we know — from common sense and studies both — do work.

However, it’s not just the Government. All too many of us have lost our sense of common sense.

Most of us wash our hands even when we don’t see them covered in dirt. You go to the bathroom; you wash your hands — no matter what they look like. You just tended to a sick kid; you wash your hands even if you don’t feel snot all over them. You go to cook something; you wash your hands, dirty or not. We do it because we know it helps keep us healthy and because the alternative is, well, just gross.

Likewise, we take showers even when we don’t feel dirty. Feeling clean makes us feel better. It helps us stay healthy.

Almost everyone brushes their teeth regularly (twice a day and then some). We don’t wait until we have cavities to brush. We don’t wait until our breath makes our friends cry. We just do it.  

Those basic, good hygiene practices are in vogue. Here is proof: Read some dating profiles — it’s one of the most common things people say they are looking for in a partner. Good hygiene, friendly smile, etc. The failure to practice daily hygiene is a black mark on us. No one wants to be the person who doesn’t wash their hands or brush their teeth. Indeed, no one wants to date that guy or gal. It’s just gross.

However, we stop there. Few of us think washing your nose is part of simple good hygiene. However, it should be part of your daily hygiene routine in a world full of airborne respiratory viruses.

Most people never wash their noses, even though studies show it can help you stay healthy. It’s the equivalent of someone saying: “No, I won’t put antiseptic on my kid’s scrapped knee. I’d rather he risk sepsis”; or “I’m not going to brush my teeth. I’ll just see if I get cavities or gum disease.”

A good many people turn to nasal hygiene after they’ve gotten ill. This, too, makes no sense. It’s the equivalent of only washing your hands when they’re covered in sick or only taking a shower when you reek of body odor.

Hygiene, showering, brushing our teeth, washing our hands, and washing our nose…it is just a common sense part of a healthy lifestyle.

And it is costing us — as individuals, families, and as a nation.

Even if the Government doesn’t tell you to do something that works, we all have it within ourselves to exercise sound judgment and common sense and do the things we know can help us. It’s not always easy. Eating right when you’re famished and staring at a double-cheeseburger or a plate of fresh, hot chocolate chip cookies can be challenging.  

Some things are relatively easy: get up and be active, wash your hands, take showers, brush your teeth, wash your nose.

Nathan Jones

Nathan Jones, Founder, President, founded Xlear, Inc. in 2000 to improve lives promoting proactive health and oral and nasal hygiene as a tool for healthier lives. With over 22yrs now in the hygiene space, focused on nasal and dental care, Mr. Jones is one of the leading experts in this arena. He is also globally regarded as an expert on the use of xylitol and other non-hexose sugars to help promote health. Under his leadership, Xlear has invested millions of dollars into research on oral and nasal hygiene, in particular the use xylitol, erythritol, and other non-hexose sugars to improve health. Among this Xlear-funded research are studies finding these sugars can block both bacterial and viral adhesion in the nose and upper airway with no adverse effects—research that Xlear hopes will open a new path to respiratory disease prevention and treatment.

Mr. Jones is also one of the leading advocates for the development of “beyond-vaccine” treatments and prophylaxis for COVID-19. As a result of his critiques of US Government COVID-19 policies that focus solely on “Big Pharma” vaccines, The Federal Trade Commission has sued Mr. Jones and Xlear seeking to censor the science, studies published in peer reviewed journals, supporting hygiene as an effective and proven tool in pandemic (COVID-19) response. Mr. Jones is focused on using this lawsuit to educate Americans about the science.

Who Will be Spared from COVID-19 Vaccine Injury?

These data suggest that ~85% of those who have received COVID-19 vaccines have no significant problems, and ~15% have been damaged. While this number is unacceptably high, and the vaccine campaign should be stopped, many are wondering now:  “why me?” There are almost certainly factors related to the vaccine product that plays a role…

Public Health vs. Population Medicine

Public Health vs. Population Medicine

Any microeconomist would understand that optimizing a complex system for a single variable throws the system out of kilter. Thus needless interventions, like vaccines, are likely to be almost always counterproductive, except they are profitable for the medical-industrial complex, which has convinced us that they are making us healthier, even though they are clearly making us sicker…

Unless we stop it, we are entering George Orwell’s 1984. Socialism, the Dems’ great reset for exerting top-down government control while simultaneously eviscerating America’s economy, is the philosophy of losers.

This is Lawfare, a Three-Pronged Attack, Legal, Media, Political

The Tom Renz Show – The atheist parasites trying to rule this world have sacrificed what is right for money and power and do not deserve your respect and certainly should not be feared. The truth of the matter is that we won’t win this fight by just filing lawsuits; trust me, I wish it were that easy. We must fight within the media and political landscape as…

Biden’s Purge and Punishment of Military is Weakening US Military Readiness

Whistleblower Report with DrLee4America – America’s military is suffering devastating damage.

America Is Fighting A Modern World War

America Is Fighting A Modern World War

Why are all of these things happening at the same time? These things are happening because the other side of the war wants to destroy our economy, and they know how to do so. Our own government is trying to destroy our nation from within, and it turns out that destroying the United States might be the one thing our Federal Government really is good at…

The Alarming Increase of Healthy People Dying Suddenly, with Dr. Peter McCullough

Nurses Out Loud with Kimberly Overton, BSN, RN – No one is addressing the elephant in the room, despite the fact that many of these cases of sudden death have occurred within as few as 1 to 20 days following covid vaccination. Still, any attempt to make that correlation is met with extreme hostility and flat-out denial that it could be in any way related…

After Dark with Hosts Rob & Andrew – The definition of a recession has been changed; illegal aliens are now referred to as undocumented workers, men can be women if they think so, and the murder of babies before and after birth is considered a right.
